Strada Provinciale 83 (SP83)

SP83, a rather impressive road

Strada Provinciale 83 (SP83) is a very exciting drive located in the Veneto Region, in the north-eastern part of Italy.

Tucked away in the Venetian Prealps, a mountain range in the south-eastern part of the Alps in the north-eastern part of Italy, the road is totally paved and has a bit of everything: tunnels, drop offs, turns and hairpin turns, with narrow parts and steep sections. High risk of rock slides.

The road is 18.0 km (11.18 miles) long, running south-north from Arsiero, a town in the province of Vicenza, at 315m above the sea level, to Strada Provinciale 64, at 1514masl. Over this distance, the elevation gain is 1199 meters. The average gradient is 6.66% but hits a brutal 36.3% of maximum gradient through some of the ramps.
